bloatwareflashoperaplugins

I just want to be able to play Youtube videos in Opera 12.

I copied np32dsw.dll in Program Files/Opera/program/plugins

but it still says missing plugin 🙁

Is there any way to install the Flash plugin, without having to install the Adobe Flash Player?

It seems to work in Chrome…

plz help

That is because Chrome already includes Flash plugin. It doesn't take into account that np32dsw.dll file you put in the plugins folder.

A lot of Youtube videos are play-able in the new HTML5 player. Activate it by going to http://youtube.com/html5 and see if videos play. You don't need Flash Player.
